I am proud to present a look at the housing market trends for the fourth quarter of 2017, from the shores of Bainbridge Island’s waterfront homes and in-city living opportunities to the Eastside’s most distinguished residences.
November's numbers are in and the Bainbridge Island real estate market inventory continues to wane, as the number of active listings was down nearly 20% month-over-month. Sales also decreased, as the number of units sold was down nearly 30% compared to October's numbers. Given the anemic inventory, however, the median listing price increased $90K from the previous year to $875K. And buyers made their presence felt as the median sale price of $690K was up over $175K compared to last year. Along with increased prices, homes sold in an average of just 23 days on the market, down 62% from the previous year.
